Lab B Summary Report The information listed here is a minimal guideline. Do not reuse any portion of a previously submitted lab report in this lab report. Doing so could result in a loss of points for the reused portion. Summary Write one or two paragraphs in which you address ± What it is you set out to accomplish . You can state it as hypothesis or as goals. It should be inclusive of all the labs that the report covers. ± What is the expected outcome? You can also state this as, "what specific claims can you make about the experiments that you did, "what did you expect to happen" or "what specific results did you expect to get?" Introduction Write one or two paragraphs in which you address ± Background information that aids the reader in understanding the experiments and their significance. Results ± You should place all your data in the results section. Write a descriptive narrative of the data that is meaningful. Do not quote all your numbers or list all your observations or facts. You can compare facts or data as well as present trends in your data. Represent your data in charts, pictures, graphs, or other visual format if it aids the reader in reviewing the data, or if it simplifies the data. Provide your figures with an appropriate legend that assist the reader in interpreting the data. See “A Short Guide” for sample figures and legends. Make reference to your figures in the narrative. Your figures should be able to stand- alone apart from the written text. You should not talk about what was expected or draw conclusions about your data in the results section. Leave that for the discussion. ± Tables, figures and results: 1. B1 Table 1: Restriction Enzyme Digest 2. Agarose gel picture with appropriate labeling of lanes: use a digital image (see good and bad examples of gel figures of the gel on last page) 3. B2 Table 1: Theoretical and expected DNA fragment sizes and analysis 4. Explanation of how the sizes of the DNA fragments were determined and/or include a graph like the one on page 54. 5.
